Two Kids Were Asked The Same Questions But Their Answers Differed For One Not-So-Obvious Reason

This is so important.

How old are you? What grade are you in? Do you like school? Do you have a lot of friends?

These are just some of the questions these two little munchkins faced during their interviews. Both 6 years old, both in the first grade, both with the same family structure — you'd expect their answers to be pretty similar.

Yet, it wasn't the case for one not-so-obvious reason — one of the kids has attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD.)

"The reason I did this video is because I want to bring awareness about ADHD in children. I want to educate people about how much the lives of children with ADHD are affected," says Cristina LaCorte-Margolis, the creator of the video.


Watch the video and see if you can guess which child has ADHD:

The video, which features LaCorte-Margolis' own daughter Giuliana, perfectly shows that kids with ADHD are not that different from their peers and dream about the same things: friendship, love, compassion, and respect.

In the post about her interview on My Little Villagers blog, LaCorte-Margolis mentions that Giuliana was diagnosed with ADHD at the age of 5, and also has depression and anxiety issues.

"She is beautiful on the inside and outside, but you will never hear her say that about herself. She constantly puts herself down and says things like "I'm stupid," "I wish I had a best friend," and "I wish I was someone else," she explains.

ADHD is one of the most common neurodevelopmental disorders of childhood and affects 5 percent of American children ages 4 to 17. With such high rates, it is crucial that society recognizes and treats them with kindness and respect. 

"Simply asking a child to play with them at recess could mean the world to a child with ADHD. All children deserve and need to be loved and wanted," says LaCorte-Margolis.
